Happy St. Patrick’s Day From Princess Melita Bonaparte

Her Imperial Highness, The Princess Melita Bonaparte, wishes all a Happy St. Patrick’s Day. She appeals for those who are falsely imprisoned, that they may find justice.

Princess Melita Bonaparte pleads for those in jail who have no head, no voice of their own..."Such needless suffering must end," she appeals to the world.

In prayerful mode, the Princess assists those in prisons with her spiritual benefits, endless prayer & advocacy.

“Let us come together to bring better schools & a better future for our people. Prisons are the result of a society that has been mislead by following the Values of Wal-Mart & other forms of corporate greed. No one should be denied educational or medical benefits & no one should have to depend upon being named ‘Employee of the Month’ as their only source of validation. Parking lots, where no one walks to the stores , are not the answer. We must seek simpler ways to live that encourage education, appreciation of art & literature & no more throwing away of film promotional art into dumpsters. Let the creative spirit of art thrive, and become a benefit for all communities. Let us send a light out to the rest of the world of this special day!”

Snapfish Baits But Don’t Rise To It! COUPON FRAUD!

They Change The Order, Uninstall the code that you originally install, then try to tell you that the code had already been used, and can only be used one time. This is el Toro ca-ca! No one should be allowed to get away with stuff of this nature, it is called bad business! Period! Are you kidding me? This is like a store taking your wallet when handing out a free sample. It is so incredibly short sighted. They train their chat people to disconnect people like me from their useless chat line. They don’t allow you enough time to say much of anything, then cut you off…I gave the last one all the information needed, and she deliberately misspelled my name….calling me Thomas Ourr. That was a clever responsibility avoidance mechanism. Actually, not clever, very stupid and senseless. Why not honour the coupon? That would be too much like right!

This is a total breach of law, ethics, good business practise, and there MUST be laws somehow, somewhere that govern Internet practises. After working for hours & hours & hours to ‘get it right,” positioning the photographs that I wanted, putting in the text that I wished to use, they disconnect the whole thing, trying (1) to sell me a book size larger than the one that I ordered, then (2) to tell me that the code had already been used.

Who used my unique code??? Did Santa Clause take a Float Day and drive down here to use my code? This is a lie, a bare-assed lie, and this company has no business being allowed on the Internet!

Now, they are asking for a 16 digit code and the code issued @ Safeway only has 12 digits! This is illegal!

This is a bunch of nonsense--Shame on Haagen-Daz, Safeway, and MOST ESPECIALLY, Snapfish!  Shame on you!

In Texas, LONE STAR ATTITUDE Defines Fashion

When tornadoes or ice & snow storms, or missing aircraft wings, engines, pilots, computer power failures, just little things, leave you stranded in the gift shop area of Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, you must take on your best bovine appearance, and just cross the line—you have entered, not the Twilight Zone, but the LONE STAR ATTITUDE. You will steer yourself gently into a ranch of fashion, roped in by the glamour, the allure of being truly not just ‘in’ Texas, but ‘of’ Texas! Your vows of poverty can no longer apply, you are now earthbound till the next weather alert! You are in Terminal C–and don’t you forget it!

In Texas, the cost of using human models for fashion statements has been out sourced, or taken to the pasture.  The cows have finally horned in & have taken over!

Fashion designers from Texas were in despair in their attempts to find human models who were not morbidly obese, so they switched to cattle.  It cost them less, and they did not move on to high paying careers in the film industry.

Sew Right To Be Here! sfseamstress.com

Just discovered this sewing & design shop last week on a walkabout. It has a warmth & charm that just makes one feel ‘at home.’ The owner was quite receptive about my looking around & using my point & click. Turns out that they do more than just clothing. Their work includes full window treatments, furniture upholstery, and even room dividers for restaurants. Their website offers a more extensive view of their production–

The store window was clever, yet understated. There was just enough for a customer to look at without feeling overwhelmed. Truly, a nice combination of differences that melded well.

Sew at your service, located @ 1421 Fulton Street San Francisco, easily accessible by going North via the Divisadero Bus.

Window design is clever, letting the tools of the trade speak volumes.

Their windows tell you the story behind cloth, before it becomes a defined item.

Colourful spools of thread  add to the charm & coziness of this lovely shop.

What looks like a cloth jellyfish is named "Billionjelloybloom development pattern & production."  It's a very SFMOMA kind of thing.  It would make a swell addition to my art collection!  Love it!

Old People Haunt Corner Mom & Pop Grocery/Deli Store! Extra, Read All About It!

Old People are not leaving this corner in San Francisco any time soon! They are part of the culture of disappearing print magazines & they won’t go!

Old People Haunt San Francisco Corner--it's old People magazines collected by the store and/or donated by supporters of the store.  A charming find in a charming City!

They also have several nice reviews on Yelp about their deli sandwiches & that’s good to know.

A BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED PIZZA BOX

A well-designed pizza box is worth its weight…in..pizza….Well, that’s a start. I like the clean design & think their pizza is very good. It’s tasty without being greasy. Has enough toppings without topping overkill, and the crust is light, without being too brittle or tough.

Don’t know how or if the film inspired the pizza or the pizza inspired the film–but I think together, they’d make a terrific night in.

Eating pizza that is well made & being inspired by an image of the Statue of Liberty is nice!

Instead of Popcorn, have Pizza! And don’t Escape from New York, embrace it!

And a bonus zip from Ernest Borgnine, remembering his part in this film.

HAPPY 4th of JULY!

Macy’s, Downtown San Francisco, had a charming & high spirited way to share this day set aside to celebrate our National Identity. They shared a vision that allowed the viewer to enjoy American icons without being suffocated by tunnel vision as to what it means to have a positive identification with the American flag. Congratulation & applause to Macy’s for finding the right touch of American symbols without hitting us over the head with it! Job well done, clever, in good taste, yet accessible.
